The course for the NYC Marathon includes a stretch only a block and a half away from our apartment.
I have never seen a marathon in person. I never thought that I was missing out on something. I mean, c’mon. It’s a bunch of people running by, right? Wrong. It is exciting and emotional. Folks cheering on their friends, teams running for causes and in memory of friends, people of all shapes and sizes who are running for a good reason–if nothing else, for their health.
We watched for a while, then returned the block and a half to clean up the 150 beer bottles from last night’s Novemberfest.
